2013 Conference on Digital Humanities in Luxembourg  
In order to facilitate a practice of reuse of datasets in the humanities, an ecosystem has to exist in which scholars can publish their datasets, correctly attribute this data according to the roles played by each author, share these datasets, and allow for various scenarios of reuse. We have developed the web-based research environment nodegoat 1 that allows for the creation of complex datasets. Current publication channels do not allow for complex authorship attribution. In this paper we
more » ... re reuse scenarios by means of an object-oriented referencing system in which datasets, data selections, entities and records are all referenceable objects with uniquely identifiable authors. Once a reference has been made to any of these objects, a citation is automatically determined based on the position of the referenced object in the network and all their corresponding authors. This object-oriented referencing system paves the way for various scenarios of reuse and processes of asynchronous collaboration.
